Amazing food, great location and excellent service at Carlucci’s Blouberg

The Cape Town restaurant scene is ever-expanding. That Carlucci’s Blouberg has managed to remain a popular eatery for over a decade is proof to the success of their unique combination of location, food and service excellence.

While its history traces back to 1997, Carlucci’s Blouberg actually opened doors in 2007 on one of the most ideal locations in the world – the Blouberg beachfront. Sitting at your table, you can enjoy the various activities at the beachfront, in the sea and postcard views of Table Mountain in the distance.

Yes, Carlucci’s Blouberg is not a 5-Star eatery, but many of their regular patrons agree, the restaurant is worth every cent. Inside the shop, expect a casual, relaxed atmosphere.

Besides great coffee, craft beers, mouth-watering sandwiches and other treats, it is their dedication to giving the best service that has endeared them with patrons. Because Carlucci’s Blouberg is a small shop, you can expect faster quicker service.

Carlucci’s Blouberg menu

The Carlucci’s Blouberg café-style menu is the product of a 20-plus-year search on how to serve the best light meals. Enjoy anything from the grab-and-go meals to pizzas and over 20 different types of sandwiches that everyone agrees are to die for.

Try their freshly-baked artisanal bread, often served with generous fillings, and proper authentic, boiled bagels complemented by freshly ground coffee.

Vegetarians and those with special dietary requirements will be happy to hear that they have not been forgotten at Carlucci’s Blouberg. Their freshly pressed juices are a hit! The range of combinations is unique to the Carlucci’s menu and sourcing the freshest fruit and vegetables for these juices is a daily priority.

After a day at the beachfront, you can check-in for sundowners and sample their craft beer menu.

This year, they announced that their full menu – including home-cooked meals and pizza’s, is now available for take away collection. They can bring it out to your car and you can order off the Mr Delivery service.

Owing to its success, Carlucci’s has since opened doors in several other locations. Each store, however, maintains its own unique character and menu.

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
